The Cowboy Assault Rifle: Why Every Texan Needs a Lever Action

Photo: Max McNabb/Instagram

Not only is this a good saddle gun, but a lever-action is also excellent for self-defense purposes. In fact, it’s an underrated weapon in a fire-fight. Of course, a modern semi-automatic rifle like the AR is hard to beat and faster to rechamber than any lever-action, simply because a semi-auto automatically cycles and rechambers a new round after each shot. However, the lever-action has some definite benefits. Loading the cowboy assault rifle couldn’t be any easier—just thumb a round into the loading gate. This allows you to “top off” the rifle, meaning you can fill the magazine to capacity, lever a round into the chamber, then thumb in an extra round. It’s easy to see why this classic weapon came to be known as the cowboy assault rifle.

When loading a lever-action rifle’s tubular magazine with rounds, you’ll want to use round-nosed or flat-nosed ammo to ensure safety, in order to prevent a cartridge with a sharper point from striking the primer of the cartridge above it in the magazine. No one wants to be in the fiery situation of holding a rifle that has bullets going off prematurely in its magazine.

The Winchester Model rifle (also known as the Winchester 94 or Model 94) is a lever-actionrepeating rifle that became one of the most famous and popular hunting rifles of all time. It was designed by John Browning in and originally chambered to fire two metallic black powder cartridges, the Winchester and Winchester. It was the first rifle to chamber the smokeless powder round, the WCF (Winchester Center Fire, in time becoming known as the ) in In Winchester created the new Winchester Special caliber with production of rifles starting in

The was produced by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company through and then by U.S. Repeating Arms under the Winchester brand until they ceased manufacturing rifles in Reproductions are being made by the Miroku company of Japan and imported into the United States by the Browning Arms company of Morgan, Utah.

The Model has been referred to as the "ultimate lever-action design" by firearms historians such as R. L. Wilson and Hal Herring. The Model is the rifle credited with the name "Winchester" being used to refer to all rifles of this type and was the first commercial sporting rifle to sell over 7,, units.[1]

One Model is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the Arms & Armor department.


The Winchester Model was the first commercial American repeating rifle built to be used with smokeless powder. The was originally chambered to fire 2 metallic black powder cartridges, the Winchester and Winchester. In Winchester went to a different steel composition for rifle manufacturing that could handle higher pressure rounds and offered the rifle in Winchester and Winchester. The Winchester, or WCF (Winchester Centerfire), is the cartridge that has become synonymous with the Model [2] Starting in , the Model was also chambered in Winchester Special.

The Model 94's combination of potent firepower in a compact, lightweight, comfortable-to-carry, and quick-shooting package has made it an extremely popular hunting rifle, particularly for white-tailed deer in the dense forests of the Eastern United States, where most game is killed at relatively short distances. As a result, it was the first sporting rifle to sell over 7,, units. The millionth Model was given to President Calvin Coolidge in , the 1½ millionth rifle to President Harry S. Truman on May 8, and the two millionth unit was given to President Dwight D. Eisenhower in [3]

The United States government purchased 1, commercial Model s with 50, cartridges during World War I. These rifles in the to serial number range were marked atop the receiver ring with a flaming bomb and "U.S." The rifles were intended for United States Army Signal Corps personnel stationed in the Pacific Northwest to prevent labor strike actions from interrupting manufacture of Sitka spruce lumber for framing the fuselage and wings of military aircraft.[4] The rifles were sold as military surplus after the war.[5] To release Lee–Enfield rifles for infantry use, the Royal Navy purchased approximately 5, caliber Model 94 rifles in for shipboard guard duty and mine-clearing. France purchased 15, Model carbines equipped with sling swivels on the left side of the buttstock and barrel band, and with metric gradations on the No. 44A rear sight. These French carbines were issued to motorcycle couriers, artillery troops, trench railway personnel, and some balloon units. Some of these rifles acquired Belgian proofmarks when sold as surplus through Belgium.[6] Examples captured from the United Kingdom by the Wehrmacht were designated the Gewehr (e).[7]

The Winchester was used again in World War II in the hands of the Canadian Pacific Coast Rangers who were issued them to defend the west coast of Canada from Japanese invaders. Winchester '94s were also provided to the British Home Guard in the early years of WWII. The Model 94 over its long history included the Winchester Model 55, produced from through in a inch (&#;mm) barrel, and the Winchester Model 64, produced from through in 20, 24, and inch (&#;mm) barrel lengths.[8] From through , a version of the Model 94 carbine was also sold by Sears as the Ted Williams Model , as part of Sears' marketing arrangement with both Winchester and the retired baseball star.

In mid, the manufacturing of the 94 was changed in order to make the firearm less expensive to produce. Generally referred to as "pre" models, the earlier versions command a premium price over post-change rifles.[9] The limited number of early production models produced prior to the changeover are considered quite desirable, as they are considered by many to represent the ending of an era.[1]

The Winchester 's design allowed the cycling of longer cartridges than the Winchester carbines could permit. When the lever is pulled down, it brings the bottom of the receiver with it, opening up more space and allowing a longer cartridge to feed without making the receiver longer. The mechanism is complex but very reliable. Complete stripping of the action is a multistage task that must be accomplished in precise sequence. However, it is rarely necessary to completely strip the action. The largest cartridge that the action can accommodate is the Marlin, which was chambered in some custom rifles and the short-lived Timber Carbine on a beefed-up "big bore" receiver.[10]

Decades after the Winchester was phased out, the Winchester Models were manufactured in typical revolver calibers such as Special/ Magnum, Special/ Magnum, Colt, Winchester, and Winchester. Typically, the tube magazine is able to hold 9 to 13 rounds of these handgun calibers. The magazine capacity depends on the length of the barrel, as the under barrel tube magazine typically covers the entire length of the barrel.[11]

Handgun calibers are preferred by modern-day Cowboy Action Shooters as it allows one type of ammunition for both rifle and handgun. A typical combination would be an Colt (Colt Peacemaker or clone) and a Winchester capable of shooting the same type of ammunition. The action, designed for smokeless rifle rounds, is much stronger than the action of the Winchesters (Models , , ) that were based on Benjamin Henry's toggle-link system, and can easily handle modern high-pressure revolver cartridges such as the Magnum.

From to , the Model 94 angle eject 20" barreled carbine and 24" barreled XTR rifle were offered in Waters (an improved case necked down to a 7mm bullet).[12] In , the rifle was offered in shotgun and named the Model [13]

As of , the Winchester holds the record for best-selling high-powered rifle in U.S. history.[14]

U.S. production ceased in At the time there were 14 versions of the Model 94 in the Winchester catalog. In Winchester Repeating Arms reintroduced the model 94 in two Limited Edition models to commemorate the th anniversary of Oliver F. Winchester's birth in New England in [15]

Design changes[edit]

Winchester 94 () Winchester Special

Three major changes have been made in the design and construction of the Winchester since World War II, all tied to major shifts in Winchester's corporate leadership and direction. The first and largest came in , after the resignation of gun enthusiast John M. Olin from the presidency of the company he founded, Olin Corporation. The second came in , after Olin's sale of the Winchester factory to its employees, who formed the U.S. Repeating Arms Company (USRAC). The third in , after the bankruptcy of USRAC and its subsequent purchase by FN Herstal, which sought to market Winchester guns worldwide.


Upon Olin's retirement, Olin Corporation's new chief executives sought to maximize company profitability, giving corporate preference to its flourishing chemical business over gun production, which was unprofitable and labor-intensive. As a result, Winchester ceased machining both the receiver and many small parts of the Model 94 out of solid steel billet as of Sintered steel was used on the receiver, stamped sheet metal for the cartridge lifter, and hollow rather than solid steel roll pins used in the action. While the rifle's function, safety, and accuracy were not adversely affected, the changes—in particular the sintered receiver, which was as strong as its solid-steel predecessor but which did not respond well to a traditional blued finish—were conspicuous and came as Winchester made even more fundamental changes to its flagship Model 70bolt-action rifle. Taken together, they were seen as a retreat from quality production across the company's whole range, seriously damaging Winchester's reputation for making quality firearms in the process. In response, many sought out rifles made before , (pre '64),[9] which command a markedly higher resale value on the gun market to this day.


One of the drawbacks of the original Model action in relation to competitors like the Marlin Model was that the Winchester ejects cartridges from the top of the receiver and over the user's shoulder, rather than to the side. A top-ejecting firearm cannot mount a telescopic scope on top of the receiver—the most convenient location for the shooter—without interfering with cartridge ejection. A scope for such a firearm must instead be mounted either far forward on the barrel (where it must be specifically designed for the purpose), or offset to the side of the gun (which creates problems due to parallax). Both options seriously degrade the usefulness of a scope for such a rifle.

This was not a major concern when the gun was originally designed; the most common upgrade to guns of the pre–World War II era was the installation of a peep sight to the rear of the receiver, which maximized the accuracy potential of the factory-installed iron sights. Winchester had long had mounting holes pre-drilled in the receiver of the gun to accommodate such a modification, and it was by far the most common upgrade installed on the Model 94 for most of its history. Nevertheless, consumer tastes changed in the years after World War II as high quality scopes became both widely available and affordable.[16] Commercial acceptance of the new scopes was likewise rapid, and by the s the ability to use receiver-mounted scopes on hunting rifles had become expected by most gun buyers. With the competition able to mount scopes on its receivers without difficulty, this shortcoming was blamed for falling sales. In response, Winchester changed the design of the action in to angled cartridge ejection, which ejects fired cartridges at an angle that allows the rifle to function while fitted with a conventional receiver-mounted scope.[16]


Despite these changes, U.S. Repeating Arms did not flourish, declaring bankruptcy in It was subsequently purchased by Belgian arms maker FN Herstal, which set about improving the whole Winchester line, instituting modern CNC methods of production at Winchester's factory while also seeking to expand the sales and marketing of Winchester rifles worldwide. This effort would culminate in two major changes to the gun in the reintroducing of now-CNC-machined parts and solid pins back into the action, and the elimination of the traditional half-cock safety notch on the hammer in favor of a cross-bolt safety, which enabled the gun to be sold internationally.

Though the increase in build quality was noted at the time, it was the conspicuous presence of the new safety that generated the strongest opinions. It was widely reviled by American consumers and gun writers alike as a "lawyer" safety, who said it detracted from the overall look, feel, and operation of the rifle. FNH and Winchester responded in by moving the safety to the tang behind the receiver, which largely quelled the controversy. Both the last Model 94s to leave the New Haven factory before American production ceased in and the new Model 94s produced in Japan since by Miroku Corp. feature these tang-mounted safeties.[17]
